Picked some up for my marlin. Shot a couple hundred rounds so far without any problems or misfires. I target shoot to about 300 yards and this ammo is on point. I only put holes in papers so I don't know about the stopping power, but I'm sure it would do fine.
being that hornady made the .17 hmr (.17 hornady magnum rimfire) in the first place all others fall short, i tried them all, i think it has something to do with there powder, there is less fouling in the bore as compared to others of the same caliber. if you dont believe me check your barrell after shooting a box of cci's then check after the hornadys, way less fouling with the hornadys, i have a marlin that i got 5 years ago with a bsa sweet 17 scope it really hits the prairie dogs hard even @ 200 yds, it also got a coyote @150 yds in the head, among other things, it will go clean through quarters @100 yds, from my experience the cci and remington had the worst bore fouling, hornady had the best, the .17 hmr is the most fun shooting ammo there is.
I purchased this ammo when i bought my new Savage 17 Hmr with a Simmons scope at Cabelas and it's great! I went through 100 rounds at the range and had no miss fires and the accuracy was great, even well beyond 100 yards. It also has good stopping power.
I use these little monsters in my Savage to pop Dixie cups full of sand at 200yds. I don't think they would be at all deadly at that distance (since they do not rupture or mushroom). But it sure is fun knocking paper cups down.
Since I use a Cabela's Pine Ridge Tactical Riflescope and have always had good results with this ammo it is all I put through my Marlin 917vsf. Even though the ammo at the store is usually pretty fairly priced Cabela's bulk ammo has proven to be a good deal. Priced individually the 50 round boxes are about the same price as the sale priced stuff around Ellensburg. The real kicker is the included ammo box which has proven to be one of the handiest things I own. I use it to keep my ammo locked up in my truck while going to the range or woods and it never dissappoints.
The ammo on its own is good but the total package is great.
Hornady .17 HMR Ammunition I think is very good ammunition. I use it in a single shot rifle with a 3 to 9x 50m scope. I shoot red squirrels at 100-150 yds, and I haven't missed yet (knock on wood) and not one squirrel has walked away. It's gets the job done.
I really enjoy shooting the .17 HMR and Hornady makes the best ammunition for it. I just returned from a trip to Wyoming where I shot the .17 HMR a lot. It worked great as always. The ammunition box was great to have as we had lots of dust and it keeps the ammunition clean. The only drawback is putting the seals on the box when you first get it. I did one just fine after "learning" on the first box. Wish they'd send two sets of seals, one for practice and one for real.
This ammo is one of the most extremely accurate rimfire cartridge that is on the market today. 190 yard shot on a woodchuck was enough proof for me,and 130 to 165 yard shots are common. Varmints don't stand a chance.
